Direct lending to established local businesses with trustworthy owners has historically provided very attractive returns.
Direct Lending Investments is a private investment firm. We are the General Partner of the Direct Lending Income Fund, LP.
Loaning money to established small businesses with trustworthy owners and a legitimate need for capital has historically provided very attractive returns.
We make this compelling, income-producing asset class available to investors.
Short-Term, High-Yield, Small Business Loan Fund
The Fund owns a diversified pool of high-yielding, 6-18 month business notes. The notes are purchased from a number of lenders including IOUCentral.com and QuarterSpot. These lenders make loans to qualified, established businesses that fit our strict filtering criteria.
Our investment objective is to earn consistent cash income net of all expenses and fees that is significantly higher than other short-term, high-yield alternatives.
Our average borrower has been in business for 10 years. We do not consider it appropriate to own ’small business loans’ made to startups. The businesses are a mix of doctors, restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, and other traditional local businesses whose modest borrowing needs of $10,000-$200,000 put them below the threshold for traditional, bank-originated business loans.
The Direct Lending Income Fund buys and holds these notes, from which it expects to generate high monthly returns, strong portfolio cash flow, and low volatility.Read More
